Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas does not have a stress fracture

The Broncos got some good news on the tests on Demaryius Thomas’ left foot, as the Denver Post reports that he does not have a stress fracture in the foot.

When Broncos rookie wide receiver Demaryius Thomas left Tuesday’s practice with more pain in his left foot, there was at least some concern he had suffered a stress fracture that could potentially have kept him on the sideline for three to four months. However, initial tests, including X-rays and a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam, indicate Thomas did not suffer a stress fracture, but he is still in doubt to play in the Broncos’ regular-season opener Sept. 12 in Jacksonville Thomas, who fractured the foot in a pre-draft workout in February, was evaluated to attempt to locate the source of the discomfort he felt in his surgically-repaired foot when he returned to practice Tuesday. Thomas had been out 17 days since the team’s Aug. 7 practice in Invesco Field at Mile High. During that stadium practice he had an issue with scar tissue around the area of his original fracture, a common aftereffect of the injury and the usual surgery to repair it and his latest bout could involve some additional scar tissue.
